13-inch MacBook Pro review: Apple’s M2 is a worthy follow-up to the M1


Recommended Posts

Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro is a little tough to recommend given the options in Apple's lineup, but that doesn't change the key takeaway: The new second-generation M2 chip doesn't disappoint.

While Apple calls the 13-inch MacBook Pro its “most portable Pro laptop,” there’s nothing that’s particularly “Pro” about it. It has too few ports for power users, and it can't touch the 14-inch MacBook Pro in performance. It offers little to draw would-be buyers away from the similarly specced and soon-to-be-launched MacBook Air redesign.

Specs at a glance: 2022 13-inch MacBook Pro
Screen 2560×1600 at 13.3 inches
OS macOS Monterey 12.4
CPU Apple M2
RAM 16GB
GPU Apple M2
HDD 1TB SSD
Networking Wi-Fi 6; Bluetooth 5.0
Ports 2x Thunderbolt/USB 4, 3.5 mm headphone
Size 0.61×11.97x 8.36-inch (1.56×30.41×21.24cm)
Weight 3 lbs (1.4 kg)
Warranty 1 year, or 3 years with AppleCare+
Price as reviewed $1,899
Other perks 720p FaceTime HD camera

But the real story is that this is the first laptop to be released with the second-generation ARM-based processors for Macs. The M2 is an exciting follow-up to the already impressive M1 and a promising herald of what's to come with future Macs carrying the "Pro" moniker.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
